Special Application Areas
Underfloor heating: Polyflor Vinyl LOC Underlay is suitable for use with underfloor heating. The low thermal resistance allows efficient transmission of heat.
Heavy load: The high compression strength and unique surface of Vinyl LOC Underlay allows the supported floor to absorb an increased load. We do however always recommend taking precautions to protect flooring by using furniture pads and cups to avoid creating scuffs, scratches and indentations.
